Together with Latin Lawyer, the Vance Center has launched the annual pro bono survey for Latin America. Now in its 14th year, the survey is the primary tool to measure the institutionalization and impact of pro bono practice in the region.
For 2021, survey questions cover a broad range of issues pertaining to institutional pro bono programs at law firms, ranging from infrastructure and scope of pro bono services offered to relationships with pro bono clearinghouses and COVID-19 responses.
With the collaboration of clearinghouses in the Pro Bono Network of the Americas, more than 170 law firms participated in the survey last year—more than ever before. Such levels of engagement allow for a comprehensive analysis of pro bono practice in the region. The Vance Center therefore encourages all law firms and in-house counsel to participate in the survey this year.
